Tuesday 13 March, Ceilidh at the Biscuit Factory – bus leaves the hotel at 7:15pm
Put on your dancing shoes for a traditional Ceilidh at the Biscuit Factory, an independent art gallery located in the cultural quarter of Newcastle, Ouseburn.
A former Victorian biscuit manufacturing warehouse, the Biscuit Factory retains many of its original and characterful features, while providing a platform for over 250 artists to display their work.
Starting with a drinks reception, you’ll have a chance to browse the works on display, including paintings, handmade prints, glass, ceramics, textiles, photography, furniture, design led homewares and jewellery.
This will be followed by a hot fork buffet and our Ceilidh, a traditional dance which descends from the Gaelic word for ‘gathering’ or ‘party’.
Don’t worry if you have two left feet, don’t know the steps or have the rhythm of an elephant, each dance will start with a caller walking you through the steps, and then you’ll be set free to have a go.
So whether it’s the Britannia Twostep, Cumberland Square Eight, Dashing White Sergeant, or the Gay Gordons, we’re sure you’ll have a great time.
And, if that sounds like too much exercise, join colleagues in the bar for something more relaxing.
